Passengers flying from Doncaster Sheffield Airport can now head to the Channel Island of Guernsey thanks to a new Flybe connection.

The island, known for beach resorts like Cobo Bay and the scenery of its coastal cliffs, can now be reached by flying from the Finningley-based airport and connecting at Jersey.

Chris Harcombe, head of aviation development for Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “We are delighted that Flybe have been able to add Guernsey as an onward connection from Jersey, making another of the Channel Island’s accessible to our passengers.

“During the summer months this connection will operate daily and during the winter months it will connect three times a week. Working with Flybe we are providing great connectivity to our passengers and increasing the number of destinations they can reach by flying from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.”
